It's good to be Kevin Durant.

On Tuesday, the NBA announced that Kevin Durant was Western Conference Players of the Week.

The players were crowned POTW for their stats collected in games from Monday, Nov. 25 through Sunday, Dec. 1.

Durant has helped the Thunder (12-3) to three wins during the week. On Wednesday, Nov. 27 Durant posted 24-points, 13 rebounds and four assists in a 94-88 win over the San Antonio Spurs. Against the Golden State Warriors on Friday, Nov. 29, he scored 25 points, 13 rebounds and five assists in a 113-112 win. On Sunday, Dec. 1, he posted a triple-double win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. He scored 32 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds in a 113-103 win.

Currently, Durant sits second in the conference in scoring (27.0 ppg), fifth in rebounding (12.0 rpg) and eleventh in assists (7.0 apg). He's also posted two double-doubles during the week.

In other good news, Durant and Michael Jordan are the only players with 30+ points, 10+ rebounds, assists, 4+ steals and blocks.

In other words, Durant is off to having the best week ever.
